Wisdom of the Duke

Friday! Today’s Wisdom of the Duke should probably be re-titled “Western Wisdom”, because the quote isn’t from John Wayne, instead it’s from what is in my opinion the greatest Western of all time: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

If you’re gonna shoot, shoot. Don’t talk. – Tuco

Uttered by the film’s sort of villain immediately after he plugs someone who spent too much time talking about how he was going to kill Tuco, and not enough time actually shooting at him.

I like this quote from a tactical standpoint, it’s good advice. When it’s time to shoot, shoot. The difficulty is knowing when that time has come.
